For planet earth and beyond
In recent years, there has been a notable increase in interest in constellation initiatives. These initiatives represent a paradigm shift for the Satellite Communications domain and bring with them a significant number of opportunities and challenges. In particular, the rapid development of Satellite Communications constellations has meant a big increase in the number of space and ground assets, which in turn has created substantial challenges for environmental sustainability.
The 1st ESA Workshop on Sustainable Technologies for Satcom Constellations event will aim to identify the key technologies, concepts and solutions for the design and implementation of Satellite Communications constellations, based on responsible and sustainable values for the use of Space.
The ESA-ECSAT 5G/6G Hub webinar is an online event bringing together industrial actors from a range of business sectors. The attendees will have the opportunity to hear from telecommunications experts on how hybrid satellite-terrestrial networks can contribute to their technology development. The webinar will highlight examples from the areas of healthcare, the energy sector, and the automotive industry.
The GREECONNECT Virtual Day is an online event bringing together industrial and research actors with an interest in small satellites to receive information on current and future opportunities though the Greek National Space Project. The event is supporting the European Space Agency (ESA) Agenda 2025, set out to foster the growth and collaboration of the European space sector by ESA Director General Josef Aschbacher.
“Reinventing Satellite Broadcasting for the 5G era” proposes an interactive workshop to foster the discussion between satellite, terrestrial infrastructure and service providers, media and other verticals representatives and industry, addressing the requirements and potential solutions for evolved media distribution and 5G satellite systems and service delivery chains.
This is an annual event for European and Canadian Industries as well as ESA technical experts to showcase the latest developments in the domain of optical and quantum communication technologies under the ScyLight umbrella and beyond. It will be a unique opportunity to present your results and gain an overview of ongoing activities. The event will give you a chance to discuss, network and exchange with colleagues from both ESA and industry.
Final Presentation Webinar - ARTES Future Preparation Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for Satellite Telecommunication
ESA would like to invite you to the Final Presentation Webinar of the ARTES Future Preparation (FP) activity Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for Satellite Telecommunications.
This Webinar will take place on the 9th of June at 10:00 CEST and it will present the results and key lessons learnt of the two parallel contracts lead by Joanneum Research (AT) and GMV (ES), that performed this study.
The Webinar is scheduled to last a maximum of 1h 30min, with 2 presentation of 30min (one for each contract), followed by a short Q&A session.
New activity - Inflatable structures for telecom satellites.
The need for ever-more powerful telecom satellites drives the development of the associated technologies. A key example is the need for lightweight, large systems such as solar arrays and radiators, usually deployed in-orbit using booms and masts made from rigid structures. An alternative strategy is the use of inflatable structures, where deployment is achieved via/through gas inflation. Such structures are considered very attractive owing to their high mechanical packing efficiency and low mass. For this reason, inflatable structures are potentially a key technology that could have a wide range of applications for future satellite communications missions.
